Welcome to child care at Catholic Charities Maine —
nurturing and inspiring children to achieve their fullest potential.

At St. Louis Child Development Center, we are committed to offering the highest quality care to infants, toddlers, pre-school and school-age children (6 weeks to 7 years), regardless of income.

As a Maine recipient of the Early Reading First grant to support early literacy programs and Maine’s only child care provider that is accredited by the Council On Accreditation, we take pride in delivering a curriculum of developmentally appropriate early learning programs tackling both literary and math skills (find out more about us here.)

Our weekly rates are affordable and we have parent assistance available for eligible enrollees.

We also take pride in all the "extras" we provide including yoga, gardening, art and two age-appropriate playgrounds.

When you’re ready to help your little one get started, we’ll start getting them ready for school — and everything else in the world they can dream of!
